ACARA Data Access Program

About the program

ACARA collects, analyses and reports statistical and related information about schools and the outcomes of schooling, as required by the COAG Education Council under ACARA’s Charter.

ACARA’s work in this area is undertaken under the Council’s Principles and Protocols for Reporting on Schooling in Australia (2009), which are intended to guide and inform the use and publication of data generated in the process of measuring the performance of schooling in Australia.

ACARA provides access to the data collected for third parties under the Data Access Protocols – 2015 revision. Please review the Protocols before submitting a data access application.
